Anything flown in space requires the highest level of reliability for mission success in extreme environments.

We offer rigorous space testing and qualification in Australia, including testing against ionising radiation.

We are enabling a National Vision for space qualification by:

  • Subsidising access to industry – providing more test for buck, accelerated space qualification and increased facility through-put
  • Testing disruptive solutions – creating and initiating new ways of performing space qualification to support the space industry today and for years to come
  • Assisting in grant proposals – up-front scoping and cost estimation for test activities during proposal preparation

We strive for your mission success through assurance by:

  • Standardising qualification – driving quality of service across the board
  • Accreditation – continuously improving and auditing equipment and instrumentation, documentation and personnel
  • Testing – testing space hardware

We provide universal access and community uplift through:

  • A gateway to testing – offering test capability information and directing and connecting prospective customers to test services via our website
  • Education, training and knowledge base – informing customers on the importance of test, conduct of test, and cost of test

Mission design

We have $1B of space qualification infrastructure for immediate, cost-effective testing and accelerated space mission design and delivery.

New capabilities

New capabilities mean more Australian space industry growth and increased international competitiveness for Australian technology.

Mass testing

Mass testing reduces the cost of access to global supply chains and creates new revenue streams for Australia’s tested hardware and components.

Local qualification

Local space qualification of Australian-designed devices boosts mission success and avoids complications of intellectual property protection, export controls and transport of irradiated devices.

Unity

This unifies space qualification efforts with Australian Space Agency for increased Defence, civil and disaster management mission success.
